The Best Attraction at Walt Disney World Isn't The One You Think

A game changer…

Fans trying to touch something in VR experience

The end result of Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire is an attraction so crazy fun and immersive that it might truly be the best thing at Walt Disney World right now. Most guests are ignoring it because of the upcharge price, the mystery around it, and because it isn’t in the parks. It doesn’t fit the “classic” mold of a Disney attraction, but it is seriously one of the most fun things we have ever done at Walt Disney World. Even if you aren’t a Star Wars fan, the realism of the experience is stunning. For superfans, it’s literally your childhood make-believe coming to life.

While the current format for Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire makes it more suitable for an upcharge experience, the possibilities are endless for how this technology could be applied in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and elsewhere in Walt Disney World. The cast members we spoke to at The Void suggested the attraction is not just a pop-up experience—they are there to stay for the foreseeable future, meaning Disney is serious about exploring this technology and how it can be used in future guest experiences. If this holds even a hint what might be in store for Star Wars Land’s much-anticipated two flagship attractions, we are looking at a new array of theme park experiences unlike anything ever attempted before.

Don’t take our word for it. Seriously, before your next trip, book a ticket and experience Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire for yourself… Cassian says you have to.

Have you experienced Star Wars: Secret of the Empire? What were your impressions? In your opinion, is it a better attraction even then Avatar: Flight of Passage?
